Can we assume that it is Celestia visiting Cade at the end of Doombringer?

And does that mean we'll meet Nate again, and maybe know how Cade's father can be Nate's younger halfbrother? Gloamglozer Need help? 19:18, March 19, 2017 (UTC)

Who did Xanth marry if Magda married Rook?

I always thought it would have been Magda and Xanth, but the official Edge Chronicles Website states that Rook and Magda married. Does anyone have a proof for that in the books? Maybe I just missed that. And who's Rufus' mother then? Gloamglozer Need help? 19:18, March 19, 2017 (UTC)

So what is everyone's opinion on what is beneath the edge? Do you think it's possible to have multiple edges on top of each other? And also, did it ever say what was beyond Riverrise, besides the mountains and the Nameless Ones? I always wondered about that, too...

  • SPOILER ALERT: At the very end of The Immortals, there is a picture of the Edge from a side view and zoomed WAY out. At the bottom is just a plain of rock (possibly discovered by Nate Quarter), and beyond Riverrise and the mountains is a steep slope to that plain.

If retrieving stormphrax is as futile a quest as portrayed in Stormchaser then how did Quode Quanx Querix and Philius Embertine ever manage to procure some shards for Sanctaphrax?

They were the greatest stormchasers ever.

  • As for Philius Embertine, I don't know, but Quode Quanx Querix was the FIRST stormchaser ever, so he knew exactly what to do.

Did Quint and Maris ever see each other again? And if not, why not?

  • I don't think so. Maris was too upset with Quint and herself for abandoning the child that she couldn't bare to look at him, lest it remind her of what she had lost. When Quint could not find their son again, she set out to the freeglades where Quint never went. Captaintwig 19:14, May 16, 2010 (UTC)
  • No, they did not. Maris spent the rest of her life constructing the Free Glades with Tweezel, and lived out her final years on Lullabee Island. Fawfulfan Fawful Laughing Want to talk? 20:10, May 17, 2010 (UTC)

How did Tem Barkwater get out of the Twilight Woods? When he came back in Freeglader as the Mire pirate, I mean.

  • Tem actually explained how he got out when he was talking to Rook. Shrykes found him wandering in the Twilight Woods, and enslaved him, but he managed to escape and found refuge in the Free Glades. Fawfulfan Fawful Laughing Want to talk? 20:10, May 17, 2010 (UTC)

In which book(s) and what chapter(s) does it tell you about what Woodfish and Goom and Maugin do once they are left behind in the Garden of Life? I have read all 11 books but I seem to have missed that part. I only know what they actually did because I read it on this website

  • It was revealed in Paul Stewart and Chris Riddell's blog, Weird New Worlds, which contains an extra, final story about the Edgeworld. It's set twelve years after The Immortals. Fawfulfan Fawful Laughing Want to talk? 13:06, June 4, 2010 (UTC)
  • In the Cade Saga, which kind of replaces the Weird New Worlds, this is not explained. In Weird New Worlds, it is Woodfish who comes and rescues Forden Drew, but in the Cade Saga, it is Goom who rescues Cade. In WNW, Goom left for a Great Convocation of Banderbears, but in the Cade Saga, it is not clear what happens to Woodfish. It kind of makes sense that it is Goom who rescues Cade, because all of the main protagonists have this connection-thing with banderbears, and Cade can have the "Fr-wunds"-moment of Twig. Maybe the authors just forgot about Woodfish because he died in the parallel universe that is Weird New Worlds. Ot he'll be mentioned in The Descenders, but that's not that likely, as he wasn't that important.

Gloamglozer Need help? 18:58, April 20, 2017 (UTC)

My book The Last of the Sky Pirates says on the side that it is book seven and the map on the spine of the book does not go with The Curse of the Gloamglozer. Is that a misprint and if so is it worth any money?

Question posted by 21:43, June 14, 2010 (UTC)

  • It is not a misprint. The books do not always go in chronological order, but instead jump around to various times in the Edge. Here's a list of the books, reordered to represent the time period the stories occurred in:

So, the answer is no, it's meant to be like that. Fawfulfan Fawful Laughing Want to talk? 13:49, June 14, 2010 (UTC)

I said that The Last of the Sky Pirates, which is supposed to be book number five, has the number number seven instead of book number five. Also, the map dosen't go with book number four The Curse of the Gloamgloazer. 21:43, June 14, 2010 (UTC)

That's weird about the number...but the map is supposed to be like that. I don't think it'll be worth any money, though. Fawfulfan Fawful Laughing Want to talk? 22:17, June 14, 2010 (UTC)

It probably says book seven because it is seventh in chronological order. The chronological order IS the order shown within the books, although they can be read in any ordder, so they could be numbered that way.-- AM666999talk 15:31, June 16, 2010 (UTC)

The number,misprint. The series:DEFINATELY worth money. The map:there were some significant changes. The main one is Sanctarphax. In book 2 it floated away. In book 5,6,&7 you see new sanctarphax, being held up by the Sanctarphax forest.

  • LISTEN UP! The book says 7 because it's in CHRONOLOGICAL ORDER!

Why doesn't it show the Edgeworld all the way to the Stone Gardens in the map in the front of The Immortals, why does it only show until the Eastern Woods?

  • I think it does but it it is to scale. You can just make out sanctaphrax i think. the scales in the maps are all off in all the books. The idea is I believe that the woods are very very large Captaintwig 18:39, June 28, 2010 (UTC)
  • Oh yeah thanksBbros 11:06, July 9, 2010 (UTC)
  • If you remember, earlier in the series, someone (Dont remember who) said that when Sanctaphrax AND Undertown were destroyed, the Deepwoods would take over. My theory is that happened, which also explains why there were no Flight Rocks in the 3rd Age. RickNovile 23:44, August 21, 2010 (UTC)
  • It's because nothing important happens near undertown in the Immortals. It's so you can see more details in the Deepwoods.
  • You CAN make out the Mire and the Ruins of Old Undertown. The maps in the other books do not show Sanctaphrax or Undertown to scale, and they only show the Eastern Woods. P.S. to the person above, the climax of the book happens near there.
  • On the map at the very edge of the Edge, on the left hand side, there is a tiny bit of white space. That space is what is left of the stone gardens and old undertown and new sanctaphrax, after they were destroyed. Also, it mentions in Midnight over Sanctaphrax that if something blocks the mother storm from reaching Riverrise, the Deepwoods would expand over all the Edge. In the Rook trilogy, Orbix Xaxis takes a lightning bolt in an attempt to heal Sanctaphrax, and so the Deepwoods expanded.

Do you think that there will ever be an Edge Chronicles movie?

  • Maybe, maybe not. It all depends on whether they can get the backing they need. They have a lot of story to cover and a lot will be lost in the necessary condensing, unless they write a story solely for the big screen. Or, I guess they could do it as a small miniseries, like what they do with Terry Pratchett's novels. <a _rte_data="%7B%22type%22%3A%22internal%22%2C%22text%22%3A%22Lady%20BlahDeBlah%22%2C%22link%22%3A%22User%3ALady%20BlahDeBlah%22%2C%22wasblank%22%3Afalse%2C%22noforce%22%3Atrue%2C%22wikitext%22%3A%22%5B%5BUser%3ALady%20BlahDeBlah%7CLady%20BlahDeBlah%5D%5D%22%7D" _rte_instance="5877-10215705754c8c5e97b3b7b" href="/wiki/User:Lady_BlahDeBlah" title="User:Lady BlahDeBlah">Lady BlahDeBlah</a> 14:32, September 6, 2010 (UTC)
  • I think that a movie about the edge as per the books ie a movie about Quint, Twig, and Rook for starters woud be amazing if it was done by Peter Jackson the director who did Lord of the Rings and all the computer graphics as well as costumes done by Weta Workshops NZ  they would defenitly do the book and Paul and Chris proud.

Can anyone provide a list of the colours and patterns of the different Sanctaphrax Academics' robes? And not just the major ones?

  • Not all of the colors and patterns are even mentioned in the books. There are a total of 222 schools in Sanctaphrax, and though the two hundred "viaduct" school robes are all more or less the same, some of the others don't get referenced. Fawfulfan Fawful Laughing Want to talk? 11:09, September 11, 2010 (UTC)
Yupyup, this I know. I don't have current access to any of the books, and I know there is some identification on the colours/patterns somewhere. It's not on the web, or on this wiki - I know the Viaduct schools all wear blue, I know the School of lightbulbs wear shades of grey. I recall two of the minor schools being named as orange or yellow? Who wears the red robes with the chequerboard mantles? So on so forth. Lady BlahDeBlah 11:12, September 11, 2010 (UTC)
I should add I don't want all the minor schools...there probably isn't reference to them all; the authors themselves probably haven't bothered to decide!! Lady BlahDeBlah 09:59, September 12, 2010 (UTC)

Is it just a coincedence that all of the immortals don't like tripweed at all?

Well, throughout the series, most fourthlings don't like it.

It is most likely the foul smell of tripweed, or it could be simply hereditary.

After the events of the Immortals, do the stone gardens produce flightrocks again?

Yes. They were healed by chine.

As far as I understand the destruction of the Gloamglozer was what cured StoneSickness

  • Close, but not quite. The gloamglozer what what originally contaminated the flight-rocks, but its destruction didn't cure stone-sickness. Stone-sickness was cured by chine; shortly after the gloamglozers were destroyed, the storm that carried the spirits of the Immortals from Riverrise erupted into a rainstorm impregnated with the soil from the Garden of Life, which restored the flight-rocks to full health and allowed the Stone Gardens to begin producing new rocks again. Fawfulfan Fawful Laughing Want to talk? 18:49, August 1, 2012 (UTC)

the stormchaser doesn't have a keel blade, could cloud wolf ever fight in a sky battle in it?

He did not need to fight a sky battle in it, because it's whole purpose was to collect stormphrax- not fight a sky battle. Also it was created and destroyed in Stormchaser and Midnight over Sanctaphrax.
